Aspen Ideas: Health - Brilliant minds. Bold approaches. Better health.

For six years, Aspen Ideas: Health (previously known as Spotlight Health) has been exploring the challenges and innovations in medicine, science, and global health and bringing together people who are unafraid to face them down. For the three opening days of the Aspen Ideas Festival each June, our community of experts, practitioners, innovators, and advocates addresses topics from planet-wide crises to personalized medicine, from groundbreaking discoveries to heartwarming stories of the people on the front lines of care. Aspen Ideas: Health is a conference centered around conversation, with small sessions and social programming that encourages interactivity in formal and informal settings. Lectures, panel discussions, debates, and interviews fill the schedule, and morning yoga, nature hikes, outdoor adventure, and cultural offerings enrich this unique learning experience. From its home in the wondrous peaks of Colorado’s Elk Range, Aspen Ideas: Health is the conference where healthcare’s biggest challenges meet its biggest thinkers.
Location: The Aspen Institute Campus - 1000 N. 3rd St, Aspen, CO 81611
